May 15, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Michael Sheringham will be in conversation with SACU Archivist Dr Linxi Li on his experiences of living and teaching in Beijing. This is the latest in our series “Your Stories with China” SACU ChinaChats.

Michael studied Chinese at Durham and Cambridge Universities, becoming an active SACU member in its early years after 1967. Michael joined the 1971 SACU tour  and he was invited to teach English at Peking University (Beida) in 1972, staying there until 1978. This was the period of the ‘Revolution in Education’, which he experienced at first hand. He will illustrate his talk with his own photographs.

SACU ChinaChats are members-only meetings for members to meet and discuss China-related topics.
